, this is a erode in the confidence of the ability not just in the obama administration but of president obama himself. even worse the political ramifications it's going to have going throughout the democratic party is going to be absolutely chilling because they can't explain this away anymore. we really do have some problems. so what you are seeing is not just the web site. but the entire policy. hard to call it a law with all these waivers, exemptions and delays that have been granted out there. the american people don't know where this is going right now. and to be 20% failure rate people won't be able to get on it. what does it mean for 20% who are still looking to have healthcare coverage? >> it's interesting to hear the white house talk about it they call it 80% success rate. but, you are right. in one in five people won't be able to get healthcare insurance. congressman, you understand messaging. a hype in reverse. setting us up almost for nothing to happen. what are you expecting come tomorrow? >> i think right now you you saw a president talk about more immigration reform than this c

this comes to fruition and the american people see what's happening. political question of obama in care has been is it going to help more people than this hurts and is it going to hurt more people than it helps. to buy new coverage they are going to have to spend more money and have higher premiums and deductibles that are way way beyond what they can pay. if you have a larger number a group of people experiencing that sort of situation, you are going to have a lot of political energy behind the opponents of obamacare. we have already seen now today we found dramatic change in the public's preference, republicans vs. democrats in the upcoming 2014 congressional elections. there was a dramatic shift towards republicans away from democrats. we have seen what this has all done to president obama's approval rating. just 40% think it can happen. >> a lot of people talking about this is the redistribution of wealth taking effect in healthcare. making winners and losers. do you believe the republicans can capitalize on that in the elections coming coming forward? >> if they can't, they ought to ha

a high deductible. it didn't pay for much. it was one that president obama would call inadequate but it paid if i got in an auto accident or got cancer or was severely sick and had to spend a week in the hospital. but, day-to-day i had to pay. but it only cost a dollar a day and i loved it because i was young and healthy and i probably wasn't going to get sick. and that's kind of what we need. young healthy people aren't going to buy expensive obamacare plans because they are going to be pretty expensive. they are going to have high deductibles also. they are still going to be expensive because they have mandated all these things that have to be covered below the deductible. there is all kinds of reasons why young healthy people are not going to like being stuck with poor choices. >> senator, nice to see you, thank you, sir. >> thanks, greta. >> and after today's senate hearing our griff jenkins trying to get more answers from the cmf. >> griff jenkins from fox news. what confidence you can give the american people that its web site will be fixed and secure. >> excuse me. thank y
